Mihai Popoviciu Top 5 favourite remixes (In no particular order!)
This weekend, music is here to stay! Mihai Popoviciu is sharing with us his top 5 favourite remixes and the tracks are playing on repeat for hours already. 🙂 We hope you enjoy the selection and his nice words as much as we do, and get yourself ready for a crazy weekend, a lot of good music and a few hours on the dancefloor.
Pellon – Harmonies Of Glass (Mihai Popoviciu Remix) [Parallel Label]
I really like the vocal on this one! I played around with it and used the refrain in the break. The themes sit on a groovy 909 percussion that makes it suitable for peak time action.
Benno Blome – Abotha (Mihai Popoviciu Remix) [Time Has Changed]
Slightly more up-tempo and slick remix with simmering and shimmying chords rolling over the face of the straight housy beats. In the breaks, I used some warm pads to change the mood.
Per Hammar – Released Dubb (Mihai Popoviciu Remix) [Danse Club Records]
Straight to the floor version of a great original! The stabs and chords lay over the stomping groove. Pads are coming in and out to give it a warm feel.
Phonique & Acumen – The Moment feat. Boot Slap (Mihai Popoviciu Remix) [Dessous Recordings]
The original has a catchy vocal that I also used in the remix. I turned it into a tough and techy rework with a jacking bassline.
Qbeck – Eureka (Mihai Popoviciu Remix) [Amam]
This one has a rather dark and mysterious mood. The percussion is slick and driving so it can work in all moments of a party.
Eddie Richards – Soul Is Life (Mihai Popoviciu Remix) [Storm Recordings]
It was such an honour for me to get asked by the legend Eddie Richards to do a remix for this classic of his! I tried to keep the same vibe as the original and give it my personal touch at the same time.
